ABOUT THE PRODUCERS

Vickie and Peter Van Ness
Vickie & Peter Van Ness

Vickie and Peter Van Ness, founders of gimmeLIVE, have produced some of the largest and most critically acclaimed concerts and festivals on Boston's North Shore featuring national recording stars and award-winning young artists.

GIMMELIVE just opened a new venue, 9 Wallis, right next door to Beverly's historic Larcom Theatre. 9 Wallis is the North Shore's most elegant, intimate listening room offering comfortable show seating at tables with food & beverage service including wine, craft beers and specialty cocktails.

Click here to join our mailing list -- you'll get updates on 9 Wallis, new show announcements, special deals and prime seats before tickets go on sale to the general public.

Since 2012, GIMMELIVE's award-winning seasons at Beverly's three theatres -- The North Shore Music Theatre, The Cabot and The Larcom -- have featured Rock 'n' Roll icons and showcased emerging young talent you might want to keep your eye on -- Vickie & Peter have been known to spot stars in the making before.

In January 2016, after producing dozens of benefit concerts and festivals north of Boston, gimmeLIVE produced a Classic Rock Festival in Delray Beach Florida featuring Micky Dolenz of the Monkees, Felix Cavaliere of the Rascals, Mark Farner -- founder of Grand Funk Railroad, Steve Augeri -- Journey's former lead singer, John Cafferty & Michael "Tunes" Antunes of the Beaver Brown Band. The festival raised thousands of dollars for the educational programs at Old School Square.

Many of gimmeLIVE's concerts and festivals raise money for good causes. Click here if you'd like us to produce a concert or festival to raise money for your organization.

A BRIEF HISTORY

In 2007, GIMMELIVE reunited the Pousette Dart Band to headline a Memorial Day Weekend Music & Arts festival that launched Celebrate Gloucester and the grand opening of Cruiseport Gloucester, Gloucester's very first cruise ship terminal.

After co-founding Gloucester's wildly successful summer Block Parties and producing several other major events (including Concert From the Heart featuring American Idol finalist Ayla Brown, which raised money for a local boy's much needed heart transplant) they produced Celebrate Gloucester 2010 featuring Charles Neville, Henri Smith, Roomful of Blues and local rising stars.

GIMMELIVE kicked off a Summer 2012 concert series at North Shore Music Theatre with Chris Isaak's U.S. tour, which introduced Chelsea Berry followed by Aaron Neville, with local singer/band-leader Henri Smith and the first Orleans concert in New England after original founder John Hall re-joined the band, featuring local legend Fly Amero.

In 2013, gimmeLIVE brought music to Beverly's historic Larcom Theatre for the first time since the days of Vaudeville, starting with a sold-out Mardi Gras benefit concert featuring Grammy-winner Charles Neville of the Neville Brothers with Henri Smith New Orleans Friends & Flavours followed by world-class artists, whose Larcom Theatre shows have garnered rave reviews.

In December 2013, gimmeLIVE packed Gloucester's iconic UU Church Meetinghouse for the first of a highly successful benefit concert series featuring top local talent and major recording stars, including John Sebastian, the first Rock n Roll Hall of Famer to perform in Gloucester.

During the summer of 2014, gimmeLIVE presented concerts at the Old Whaling Church in Edgartown, Martha's Vineyard and in Gloucester aboard the Beauport Princess Cruise Ship and at the Waterfront Pavilion featuring artists of several genres -- from folk icon Peter Yarrow (of Peter Paul & Mary) to Ska pioneers The Toasters.

Later in 2014, Peter and Vickie co-produced That's When I Know It's Mardi Gras, a live CD recording at Beverly's Larcom Theatre featuring New Orleans vocalist Henri Smith with Grammy Award-winners Charles Neville and Amadee Castenell.

GIMMELIVE's 2014-2015 concert season at Beverly's Larcom Theatre featured award-winning, sold-out shows featuring music legends including Art Garfunkel, Leon Russell, Booker T. Jones, Jefferson Starship, Johnny Winter, Marshall Tucker Band and many more.

During the summer of 2015, Vickie and Peter presented a series of concerts featuring national recording stars and award-winning Boston area talent at the newly re-opened Cabot Theatre in downtown Beverly.

In January 2016, gimmeLIVE produced a Classic Rock Festival in Delray Beach Florida featuring Micky Dolenz of the Monkees, Felix Cavaliere of the Rascals, Mark Farner -- founder of Grand Funk Railroad, Steve Augeri -- Journey's former lead singer, John Cafferty & Michael "Tunes" Antunes of the Beaver Brown Band. The festival raised thousands of dollars for the educational programs at Old School Square.

In early 2017, gimmeLIVE expanded into the building adjoining the Larcom Theatre (at 9 Wallis Street), formerly owned by members of Le Grand David Magic Company and known as the Grand Salon. GIMMELIVE has re-branded this elegant venue as 9 Wallis, which is now the North Shore's most intimate listening room offering comfortable show seating at tables with food & beverage service, plus a full bar. This beautifully restored, tremendously flexible space, featuring all the modern amenities you could ever want, is also available for private parties and corporate events -- with or without entertainment. Click here for more information.

Through gimmeLIVE, Peter & Vickie Van Ness continue to bring critically acclaimed entertainment to top intimate venues north of Boston.
